On Thursday evening, from 20:00 pm, we are witnessing an interesting match between Wolverhampton and Liverpool, in the 24th round of the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp’s team, undefeated this season, comes to Molineux without injuries Clyne, N. Keita, Milner and Lovren, while the hosts cannot count on the injured Boly, Vinegar and Jota.
Impeccable this season, the “Cormorants” come after six consecutive wins without a goal, in the matches with Leicester (4-0), Wolverhampton (1-0), Sheffield United (2-0), Everton (1-0), Tottenham (1-0) and Manchester United (2-0). It is true, four of these games were played at Anfield, but the fans of the leader have every reason to be optimistic in this move. Salah has the quota of 9.00 to mark from outside the square in the gate of Rui Patricio, a quota that makes us with the eye from now on.
Wolverhampton is not in the best shape and has not played convincingly enough for Molineux this season, having only the 12th league record (4 wins in 11 matches). Overall, Wolves is 6th (goal 34-30), while Liverpool is 1st (goal 52-14), with a 13-point lead over the main man, Man. City.
Liverpool and Wolves met on Merseyside on December 29, when the hosts won 1-0, following a controversial goal scored by Sadio Mane (’42). Liverpool dominated the possession (63%) and shot 10 times at the gate, as did the “wolves” of Nuno Espirito Santo, who did not refuse the game. After less successful results with Watford (1-2) and Newcastle (1-1), Wolverhampton were eliminated by Manchester United from the English Cup (0-1), but returned to the championship in a spectacular manner: 3- 2 at Southampton, after the “Saints” led 2-0 at home.
The character of the “wolves” came to light after the successes of Bednarek (’15) and Shane Long (’35). After the break, Neto (’53), Raul Jimenez (’65 – pen. And ’76) returned the score, with an enviable performance: three goals from four sutures on the goal sent by Wolves! In 7 of Wolverhampton’s last 8 championship games, both teams have registered, but the “Cormorants” defense is at a high level and could be impossible to overcome. Moreover, in the championship, Liverpool won the last 6 straight duels, 4 times “handicap”. It’s a great match on Molineux!
